Cosmeapolitan v Caspar the Cub – the “rubber-match” at Lingfield tomorrow

Even Alan is loathe to split the pair of them, they are that closely matched, but we are looking forward to the “rubber match” between Cosmeapolitan and Caspar the Cub in the Betway Handicap at Lingfield tomorrow.

Caspar came out on top when they met at Kempton, but “Cossy” got his revenge here last time, admittedly over a two-furlong longer trip, so it’s a toss of coin who will win round three over this mile and a quarter.

Alan said:”David Probert rode an excellent race on Cosmeapolitan there last time and nicked the race turning into the straight, but Caspar the Cub also ran a super race, being beaten only a length and a quarter after conceding first run, so with both seemingly still at the top of their game and relishing the all-weather, it should be a fascinating rematch.”
